We still have places available for our 2021 intake.
Please call the office on 5443 9319 if you would still like to enrol a child at St Peter's.
We find ourselves back in Remote Learning as the state of Victoria tries to reduce the number of Covid-19 cases. We know it’s tricky and difficult and inconvenient, however, we all need to do what is right and follow the directions of Daniel Andrews if we are to see the impact of this virus come under control.
What this means for us as a school community is that we have significantly reduced the number of adults onsite at any given time. We are still able to have the children of essential workers and vulnerable children here - but we ask that if it is at all possible you keep your children home - the more children we have onsite - the more adults we have to have.What this means for us as a school community is that we have significantly reduced the number of adults onsite at any given time.

Once again our teachers have been doing an incredible job preparing individualised Learning Packs for the students - these will be two week packs again. Last week’s pack was only a quick, small pack as the staff only had one day to prepare them - the ones going home today will be individualised and contain enough work for two weeks. Each family is asked to reply to the morning email - or call the office - to let us know your children are learning - this is how we are required to mark the roll.
Webex Class Gatherings
Part of the feedback from the last time of Remote Learning was that the students found it really tricky to have no contact with their friends, classmates and teachers. So this time we will be offering Webex Class Gatherings. These will be scheduled once a week and you will receive invitations via the email address where you receive the daily roll marking email. You will need to click on the link in the email to join the meeting. Webex can be used on a computer, tablet or phone. This gathering is NOT compulsory - just an opportunity for your child to catch up with their class and teacher if possible. We ask that while your child is on the Webex meeting that an adult is present in the same room. Please see the timetable and further instructions on the other side of this page.
The Chief Medical Officer has now advised that all people attending schools - both staff and children - will be required to have temperature checks when arriving at school. Anyone with a temperature of 37.5 degrees or more will be required to have a second check. If a reading of 37.5 or more is present a second time, the person will be required to leave. Any children with a higher temperature will be asked to wait in the sick-bay and a parent/carer will be notified to come and pick up the child as soon as possible. Any staff member will be required to leave immediately.
